There are approximately 12,000 young carers in Oxfordshire.
Saïd Business School, University of Oxford will proudly be working until 2025 with Oxfordshire’s only charity offering support to 8-17-year-olds acting as carers.
We will be supporting Be Free Young Carers through fundraising and volunteering and feel privileged to have the opportunity to extend our help to young people carrying such a great responsibility.
Our Dean, Professor Soumitra Dutta, said: ‘While we are a global business school with an international outlook, we are very much grounded within our local Oxford community.
‘With that in mind, I am delighted to welcome our new three-year partnership with Be Free Young Carers, a local charity supporting extraordinary children and young people in Oxfordshire who find themselves with caring responsibilities for a loved one.
‘These carers have an exceptional burden placed upon them and I look forward to seeing our School community come together over the next three years to help them carry it.’
